How do I highlight text with color in confluence?

I have some documents in my Google Docs that I would like to transfer to Confluence.
My document makes heavy use of highlighting text in color to differentiate certain contextual elements in the document.

How do I highlight text with color in confluence?

not really an answer. more of an add-on. i really want to highlight text inline from my page, not put it in its own box. i need to identify code to be changed vs. code that is good. maybe i'm just stuck in an old version of confluence?

  • Note (yellow)
  • Background Color (custom)
  • Panel (custom)
  • Status (single words)

You'll get this as a result:
